Victoria Garesfield, Happy Days - a Memory of Victoria Garesfield.

Yes, I remember all those great times at Victoria Garesfield down the River Dewent swimming all day, couple of spuds for dinner and not a care in the world. Bonfire night lasted a whole week with all the railway sleepers we used to get from the colliery free. Television was only Hilda Ridley, all us kids would go to watch children's TV for cost of 1 old penny happy days. Would love to hear from anybody from those years. Johncollins65@hotmail.co.uk
